If you work at home like I do, lunchtime can be difficult. I need easy, healthy and quick otherwise I end up skipping lunch altogether. That’s not good, right? One of my favorites are Eggs and Avocado with a side of Fermented Zucchini. It took me awhile to warm up to the whole eggs with avocados thing. It just seemed like a really odd combination. However, one day I was starving, you know the kinda starving that makes you want...
